PROJECT 60 – MAKE IT HAPPEN Project 60 integrating CiviCRM with bank information Project summary
PROJECT 60 – MAKE IT HAPPEN Project 60 Scope Managing SEPA Direct Debit recurring payments CiviCRM Financial Transactions (Bank Accounts) In real applications of CiviCRM, there are many processes which involve handling information between CiviCRM and bank accounts, which are currently handled manually or by custom scripts Project 60 is an initiative of a number of European CiviCRM integrators who want to develop a number of extensions supporting these processes. Decoding bank payments into contributions Reconciling contributions and bank accounts Importing bank payment information
PROJECT 60 – MAKE IT HAPPEN Project 60 Deliverables CiviBanking Extensions to support the processing of bank payment information SEPA Direct Debit support Extensions to support the complete SEPA Direct Debit processing ￭ Import payment information from bank statements in different formats ￭ Import payment information from accounting systems ￭ Manage multiple bank accounts per contact ￭ Facilitate automatic or assisted matching of payments to CiviCRM entities (contact, membership, contribution, …) saving hundreds of hours of manual labour ￭ Support a closed loop analytical accounting process ￭ Support the SEPA Direct Debit B2C Core model / rulebook ￭ Manage multiple creditor identities ￭ Provide a SEPA-compliant Direct Debit payment processor ￭ Manage the SDD mandate lifecycle ￭ Generate one-off and recurring payment requests ￭ Generate the XML required for bank submission ￭ Automate the exception and feedback processing (requires CiviBanking) Integrator’s Guides : ￭ Developing import plugins ￭ Developing match plugins Integrator’s Guides : ￭ Implementing an SDD workflow
PROJECT 60 – MAKE IT HAPPEN Project 60 Benefits CiviBanking Extensions to support the processing of bank payment information SEPA Direct Debit support Extensions to support the complete SEPA Direct Debit processing ￭ Turn bank payments into contributions and memberships much faster ￭ Define your own interpretation and matching rules ￭ Increase data quality and consistency ￭ Reduce the workload on your back-office team ￭ Give your data management team more time to focus on the real issues ￭ Save time and money you can spend on your mission ! ￭ Become operational with SEPA Direct Debit without a significant investment in understanding SDD protocols ￭ Tap into the fundraising potential offered by flexible and versatile bank account-based recurring payments ￭ Standardize recurring payments or memberships and long-term supporters on the new European standard ￭ Be ready to deploy the new European recurring payment model in time !

PROJECT 60 – MAKE IT HAPPEN CiviBanking Automating the interpretation of bank payments A Project 60 extension
PROJECT 60 – MAKE IT HAPPEN What is CiviBanking ? Most CiviCRM users spend some amount of time manually typing information on contributions into the system. Not only tedious, but an open invitation to typo's, omissions and other artefacts in CiviCRM. These could be avoided if some of the work currently done by human hands and mind could be assisted or automated. This extension will feature a set of plugin adapters capable of importing bank transactions (from bank statements in national bank formats or extracts from accounting systems). Once imported, a number of heuristics will be available to interpret the payment data and generate the contributions and contacts and update other CiviCRM entities as needed. Some heuristics will be able to run full automatic, some will provide the user with suggestions which can be executed at a click of a button. A manual mode will also be provided. The set of heuristics will be extensible as well, so you'll be able to setup your own business rules.
PROJECT 60 – MAKE IT HAPPEN Why CiviBanking ? Registering contributions Often manual work Searching for contacts to match against Working from bank statements Often available in electronic format Could be loaded automatically Matching Heuristics used by human operator Attempt to automate these business rules
PROJECT 60 – MAKE IT HAPPEN Key CiviBanking components Import payment information from electronic bank files or from your accounting system Maintain a registry of bank account information to improve automated / assisted identification of contacts Close the accounting loop and help in allocating funds correctly (using CiviAccounts) Ensure consistency in bank information by processing bank statement sequences
PROJECT 60 – MAKE IT HAPPEN Key CiviBanking components Support data managers with full automatic, manual or assisted (suggested) interpretation logic Automate handling of SDD batch payments and R-messagesExtend the standard matchers with your own business logic Run a multitude of matching rules to interpret payments and convert them into contributions

PROJECT 60 – MAKE IT HAPPEN CiviSDD SEPA Direct Debit integration A Project 60 extension
PROJECT 60 – MAKE IT HAPPEN What is CiviSDD ? Within the Single European Payment Area (SEPA), a new and unified model for direct debit handling has been defined, which has been rolled out over Europe over the last few years. Early 2014, most if not all countries will be required to support this payment mode. It allows for recurring and one-off direct debits (initiated by the creditor), but can be quite complex to handle. This MIH will allow CiviCRM users to setup a SDD compliant payment process. It will include the payment processor, admin screens for mandate and transaction management, and will contain the logic to generate the appropriate XML-format which is required by SEPA. In addition, we'll write up an integrator's handbook to assist in setting up the complete SDD process with your bank.
PROJECT 60 – MAKE IT HAPPEN Why CiviSDD ? SEPA Single European Payment Area, a comprehensive standardization program
PROJECT 60 – MAKE IT HAPPEN SEPA Direct Debit Organizes DD payments in SEPA zone Clarify roles (creditor, debtor, banks) Standardize documents and workflow Supported by common legislation framework Why is this relevant to CiviCRM ? SDD B2C (Business to Consumer) governs all direct debit transactions, single and recurring Replaces all country-specific protocols in 2014 SDD is a very flexible payment instrument
PROJECT 60 – MAKE IT HAPPEN SEPA Direct Debit for Dummies The donor’s bank executes the payment using the SEPA Credit Transfer scheme The donor signs a SEPA- compliant mandate … The nonprofit organisation encodes the mandate and generates transactions 1 2 The nonprofit organisation sends an XML-coded transactions batch to its own bank 3 4
PROJECT 60 – MAKE IT HAPPEN SEPA Direct Debit workflow Complexity for the nonprofit Get an SDD contract with its bank Manage the mandate lifecycle Generate single or recurring payment requests Generate the appropriate XML Follow up on payment and exceptions SDD has clear advantages Fast notification Flexibility (periodicity, amounts, …)
PROJECT 60 – MAKE IT HAPPEN Key CiviSDD components Handle mandates from different sources (street, online, call center, document) Generate the XML files for the handling bankGenerate the recurring payment requests for all your mandates Support the SEPA Direct Debit mandate lifecycle and operational exceptions
